Reason was interviewed at the Undoing Aging conference in Berlin 2019 by Adam Ford - focusing on philosophy of anti-aging, ethics, research & advocacy.
Topics include philosophical reasons to support anti-aging, high impact research (senolytics etc), convincing existence proofs that further research is worth doing, how AI can help and how human research (bench-work) isn't being replaced by AI atm or in the foreseeable future, suffering mitigation and cause prioritization in Effective Altruism - how the EA movement sees anti-aging and why it should advocate for it, population effects (financial & public health) of an aging population and the ethics of solving aging as a problem...and more.
Aging is an enemy. It saps our strength, cripples us, and eventually kills us. Yet people are
largely unaware and uncaring of ongoing research into aging and longevity, of the plausible future of rejuvenation
biotechnologies, and even of how to make the most of health and longevity using what few tools
are presently available. This must all change for the better.
